    Sounds cool, Terry! Welcome from St Louis. C-cabs are getting more popular, and offer a nice alternative to the 'open' roadsters. Plus, you've got built-in storage space!:thumbsup:

    PS - Does it look like this one?

    Welcome from the Sunny Caribbean.

    Is it one of Spirit's C-Cab boddies?

    Hi Terry, I've just joined the group as well and asked a similar question about setting up brakes on spindle wheels in the brake forum section. You might check it out. My current wheels are old school magnesium and do not have the four holes for the rotor - will have to replace them.

    I had mine machined to accept rotors. It’s not as simple as just modifying the wheels, you have to make an adapter and relocate the wheel seal. If you have the ability to do it or know a machinist, I can show you what we came up with and provide the seal part number, etc... in hind sight, I may have opted to sell my old school magnesium wheels and buy modern ones because the value of the old school rims would offset the cost. I wanted to keep the old school mags and my best friend is a very good machinist so that weighed in on the decision. I’m pretty sure that I posted pics on my photo thread if they didn’t get removed via the photo share fiasco.
